Preventing Stretch Marks
There are no cosmetic defects that concern women as much as stretch The appearance of stretch marks brings on bad moods and
makes us ready to spend a lot of money and time to get rid of them by
The main cause of the beginning of stretch marks is hormonal . They first begin during puberty. At this time in
a woman’s life, hormone levels rise. The second major period of
hormonal disturbances is pregnancy. However, except for the disturbances
of the usual cycle of hormonal oscillations of estrogens and progesterone
during pregnancy, growth is also seen in the belly, thighs and breasts.
changes in the body lead to the disturbance in the two main components
of the skin -- collagen and elastin. These substances are important for
the elasticity of the skin. If we lose these substances, the skin begins
to become thinner in places. Thus, the growth of the fetus leads to the
rapid stretching of not only the muscles and fascias of the front abdominal
wall, but also to the stretching of the skin, which, in its own part,
leads to the emergence of tears. The same thing happens when the intense
increase of the mass of a body takes place, when the skin just fails to
stretch with the constantly increasing weight gain.
The emergence of stretch marks in the breasts is connected with their
increase in size due to lactation or breastfeeding, which is quite natural
as a newborn child has to be well fed. The emergence of internal tears
in the thighs is also connected with the thinning of the skin. It happens
because the stretching of the skin in this area is quite natural. There
is nothing surprising in the fact that the skin on the thighs and buttocks
The emergence of stretch marks can be alarming. Numerous stretch marks
can be the result of diseases, such as Cushing's syndrome. With this disease,
the elution of a superfluous amount of hormones of adrenal cortex takes
place, which in turn is mostly connected with the presence of swelling.
Naturally, these intradermal tears do not stay the same forever. The
body rapidly restores the lost continuity by “sealing up the chinks”
with connective tissue. This process is identical to the process of healing
a wound after an injury, and a stretch mark is identical to a scar. The
connective tissue has blood vessels, which gives the lines a pink or lilac
tin. Gradually the amount of vessels decreases and the stretch marks become
white. Connective tissue does not contain pigment, and that is why it
does not change color due to suntan. So, on suntanned skin, stretch marks
are especially noticeable. Because of this, stretch marks are badly covered
with self-tanning creams and foundations.
How to prevent stretch marks and fight them after they appear:It
is not easy to prevent them but, from experience, it is clear that it
is easier to prevent them than to fight the ones already present.
Try to maintain your weight at a stable level. Sudden
increases in body weight, even with weight loss afterwards, will definitely
lead to the emergence of stretch marks.
Secondly, eat . Sweets, flours and other carbohydrates are useful only
in moderation and for some people in very small quantities. Proteins from
which collagen and elastin are synthesized, and also vegetables, containing
vitamins, carotenoids and other useful substances, are very good for our
Thirdly, take a reasonable approach to sports activities.
Stretching is very helpful, but you should not start to stretch your body
very intensively. It is better to do it under the supervision of an experienced
trainer. The amount of stretching should be increased gradually.
In order to prevent stretch marks during the pleasant 9 months , you may use a bandage. Ask your doctor to choose
the right one for you, as well as the right one for the post-natal period.
These simple appliances can reduce the weigh on your spine and abdominal
wall muscles. Bandages prevent not only the emergence of stretch marks,
but also keep the belly from sagging. During pregnancy, the skin often
becomes dryish and its elastic properties are reduced. That is why it
is necessary to cover the places admittedly subjected to stretch marks
(belly, thighs and breasts) with oily cream or even with olive or vegetable
oil before going to bed.
The breasts usually start increasing on the second to fifth day after
childbirth. From this time on, it is necessary to wear a brassiere, preferably
one made of natural materials. Everyday washing of the breasts with room-temperature
water and drying with a rough towel not only tempers the skin, but is
also included in the combination of measures for the prevention of mastitis.
Among the other preventive measures is massage. It is better to use a
massager or a brush with hard bristles. Regular skin massages also fight
The treatment would be incomplete without cosmetics.
Generally included in this regimen to fight stretch marks are nutrients,
hyaluronic acid, silicone, wetting agents, natural collagen and elastin.
Most of them do not penetrate the skin, but linger on the surface, creating
a superfine husk which prevents the loss of liquid, and in this way retaining
elasticity, which is so necessary while stretching.
Unfortunately we have to consider that measures applied to stretch marks
which have already emerged are often ineffective. The treatment in this
case should be carried out with triple energy.
Instead of a conclusion, one piece of advice can be given -- never rely
only on one method. To fight stretch marks effectively, the whole arsenal
of methods is to be used, so that you don’t feel that you’ve
wasted time and money.
